Whatever smallest diameter rear sprocket you got, multiplied by how fast your mower handles well.

The track is huge.  Can run 5 wide.   Bring lots of gear    You will need it.   If it gets loose you will need more gear than you think.   If they can keep it sticky it want take as tall of gear as it lookes. 

I was clocked at 65 MPH on my FXT last year and I couldn't run my tall gear.   I've fixed that problem and am shooting for 75 MPH!!!   Hope the guy with the gun shows up again!!!

There is a little rain in forecast, but their saying nothing more than sprinkles. The track dry's out extremely quick and unless we get LARGE amounts of rain there is nothing to worry about.
